Tapping Into Your Inner Relational Leadership to Create Change

Great leaders make relationships a priority. This workshop, based on the work of Dr. Jean Baker Miller, Dr. Judith Jordan and others, focuses on the components of Relational Cultural Theory. Relational Cultural Theory "is not forming a separated, independent self, but rather the ability to participate actively in relationships that foster the well-being of everyone involved (i.e. growth-fostering relationships." The theory teaches the source of human suffering is isolation and that the end to isolation is the creation of relationships and establishing high quality connections.

What It Takes to Build Organizational Excellence

In this webcast, Stanford professor and bestselling author Robert Sutton will explore what it takes for leaders and teams to spread better beliefs and actions throughout an organization.  Sutton will reveal how the best leaders and teams develop, deploy, and instill the right mindsets in their people -- rather than ruining or watering down the very things that have fueled successful growth in the past.

By attending you’ll gain useful, but not simplistic, guidelines for meeting the difficult challenge of scaling up and sustaining excellence as organizations grow and programs expand.

These tactics will be explained using examples from organizations ranging from start-ups, like Pulse News and Citrus Lane, to medium-size firms, such as IDEO and Pixar, to large firms, including Google, Procter & Gamble, IKEA, and General Electric, to healthcare systems, including Kaiser Permanente, to not-for-profits, including the Girl Scouts, to government organizations, including the U.S. Army and the Transportation Security Administration.

Engaging the Volunteer of the Future

At VolunteerMatch we have a unique view into what volunteers are looking for in an opportunity. The age of one-size fits all volunteer engagement is coming to an end.

It will then help you use this information to start designing volunteer opportunities and determining who is the “right” volunteer for your program. You’ll also learn how “word of mouth” plays such a large role in attracting volunteers to your organization and how social media makes this even more important.
